We recently upgraded all installations of WordPress, which we host, to the latest stable version of the open-source software, version 5.5.1. Please note that clients who host WordPress installations on their own VPS will need to put arrangements in place to upgrade their own installations and they will not be automatically effected by this upgrade.
The upgraded software largely resolves pre–identified minor reported bugs, although there have also been some minor enhancements.
Clients and users can find full details of the upgrade at: Version 5.5.1 | WordPress (external site, opens in a new window)
There are also new upgrades to many commonly used themes, and users will need to upgrade these manually from their WordPress dashboard.
Users should not notice any substantive changes and should not experience any difficulty as a result of the upgrade although should users experience unanticipated behaviour following the upgrade then they are encouraged to report it through the report an issue page.
